    AS is 1 year, A-level is 2 years.

    BTEC Level 3 can take 1,2 or 3 years depending on how many units you take.

    Hope this helps.

    No it takes 2 years to complete a full A level

    AS(1 Year) + A2(1 Year) = A level (2 Years)

    A levels are more respected by universities so if you want to go to a top uni you need to study A levels

    If you're self teaching, a full a level will take about two months, possibly less if you're prepared to work. If you're doing them with a college or sixth form, you're going to be looking at a couple of years.

    You'll need to find a centre for the exams and coursework (coursework will depend on your choice of subject), and that can be expensive if you're doing independently. Apart from that, as long as you have the drive to do the work, there's no reason why it's not possible.
